A brief history of art, from the Renaissance to the 20th century

How can you tell Leonardo da Vinci from Michelangelo?
A Monet from a Manet? A Picasso from a Braque?
And this sculpture, should it be attributed to Bernini or Rodin?
To answer these questions and many others, Orange and the Rmn-Grand Palais have once again joined forces to propose a MOOC in 5 sequences.
The MOOC A brief history of art gives the keys to understanding works from the 16th to the 20th century, and solid tutorials to learn how to read a painting, a sculpture or even a monument. All this in a playful and practical form.
It will allow everyone to refresh their knowledge and rediscover the masterpieces of our artistic heritage. It can also be a solid base for all pupils and students preparing their art history exams.

Interesting project to see how to popularize art history to the public. The trailer is very successful with these photo montages!
